Well, start with removing the old Novak GTB and put in a newer unit and there is a good 40-50 g.

Now, for some pics of my RM I just finished with the Porsche Rothmans body.

Oops, sorry, forget it was my original 1986 car that I just finished restoring. Guess I can start on the RM-01 now. If someone is doing a resto on an original RM, I have some NIB parts left over like the upper and lower deck, aluminum axle stopper and a few other pieces. PM if looking for something and I can get back with prices and pics.

Default Joest Racing 956 (New Man livery)

I didn't see this coming! I thought for sure it would be the Rothmans factory car but I guess they didn't want to do a livery with tobacco sponsorship.

Wow that thing looks stellar. 917, 956, 962.... you don't get a whole lot better lineage in sports cars than that.

Is this car made in japan or china, the reason I'm asking is because I bought a serpent I thought it was made in netherlands but when I got it it was made in china'. not unlike the xray cars that are really from the baltic states.

I was lazy. Used a brand new "Sharpie" black marker. Easy to use, wipes off with motor spray if you screw up and looks great. A "detail" trick I learned many years ago when doing door / hood / trunk striping on sedan cars.

As for the decals for the newman, I wish they would give additional decal options per livery. I like the look of the newman joest livery with green BP stickers and a red banner, both colors pop with the bumble bee theme.

There are numerous post in this thread, and even on this very page, that point that out in detail.

Here is one

Keep in mind that its the hex size of the old RM wheels and also the old Kyosho wheels. It is not the same hex size as the TC or Mini wheels.

Upon further review, standard 12th scale front wheels are not a viable option for the RM at this time.

With 8X5 flanged bearings, they will fit, however the off-set is 2mm more than the Tamiya wheels.
This results in a reduced front track width of 4mm. which is of no use.

On the Up side
Enetti rear wheels bolt right up, and have the perfect offset.
Stormer has them in stock.

Last week, I used Enetti 35 on the rear, with Tamiya Option fronts, to take TQ, track record, and the win in 12th blinky at TQ.

It was good close racing, the RM is very easy to drive, it really just needs to go on a diet, and have an aluminum motor mount (coming in March) to be on-point.
